I try to take as much digestive support as possible. Dealing with multiple health issues and a tough pregnancy and postpartum has left my digestion a wreck. Most digestive enzymes contain porcine derived ingredients like pancreatin and pepsin. Since I don't eat pork for religious reasons I can't take most of the digestive support supplements on the market. I was glad to find this one that is porcine free. Now, if they'd just offer a hydrochloric acid supplement (without pork), that would be awesome!
Pro-Digestion Intensive Chewable by Seeking Health provides a broad spectrum of digestive enzymes derived from vegetarian sources to support optimal digestion and normal nutrient absorption, in a delicious chewable tablet. This supplement contains a targeted blend of disaccharidase enzymes that are needed for proper cleaving of sugars including lactose (milk sugar), maltose (from cereal grains), sucrose (table sugar), and amylopectin (starch) molecules into their absorbable monosaccharide forms. Insufficient disaccharidase production by the small intestine can cause carbohydrate malabsorption and discomfort. Incompletely digested sugars or starch can also be fermented by pathogenic organisms and may contribute to yeast overgrowth and dysbiosis.*
Protein molecules require multiple enzymes for complete digestion. Proteases degrade proteins into peptides of 10 to 20 amino acids in length. Peptidases then complete the process by splitting peptides into single free-form amino acids that are used by the body. Incompletely digested peptides from casein (casomorphins), gluten (gluteomorphins), soy, or yeast may cause adverse effects in some individuals. Pro-Digestion Intensive provides a protease/peptidase complex with dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity.*
Inflammation of gastrointestinal tissues may result from various causes such as undigested or partially digested food, ingested or endogenous toxins, intestinal pathogens, and exposure to allergenic substances. In addition to supporting complete digestion of potentially irritating food components, Pro-Digestion Intensive supplies serratia peptidase, a unique endopeptidase enzyme that helps protect sensitive gastrointestinal tissue from irritation that can adversely affect tissue health and intestinal comfort.*

Great taste and help
For some reason chewing these before a meal is so much easier than swallowing a pill; they are especially good for older folks who cannot swallow easily as well.
Quality I can trust!
